Gophers (Junior Counselors)

Gophers: Junior Counselors

Good Times offers a special program to certain campers born between 2006 and 2008. This program helps transition eager teen campers into responsible adults. Gophers are assistants and help out with the day to day duties. Veteran Gophers may someday become a Good Times’ counselor! Many of our counselors were at one time Good Times’ campers / Gophers themselves.

Top 10 Reasons to Choose Good Times

1. Safety

We keep your campers safe while they have the best summer of their lives!

For Example: Each camper is required to pass a swimming assessment in order to swim without a life jacket. All campers that do not pass are required to swim with life jackets and swim with their assigned counselor.

All Good Times counselors are trained in CPR and first aid.

Ratios are kept low by having multiple counselors per group.

About Us

About Good Times

Good Times Day Camp has been family owned and operated since 1979.
Good Times Day Camp will be enrolling children ages 4½ through 14 in its 40th annual summer day camp. Camp will run 8 weeks from June 21 – August 13.



On most Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, Good Times will take a break from our activities and enjoy a picnic style lunch. Parents pack a brown bag lunch that your camper will enjoy at a picnic table or under a shady tree. Don’t worry about warm temperatures; we keep all the lunches fresh in coolers. Occasionally, a pizza and soda lunch is included with a special field trip.
